PACO General Membership Meeting – Tuesday, November 27, 2018

November 27th is less than two weeks away, and with the Thanksgiving holiday next week, this month’s General Membership Meeting will be here before you know it. Please be sure to register and come hear what Paul Unger, Esq., of Affinity Consulting Group LLC, brings to the podium. He will be speaking about How to Better Manage Your Workload: Time, Task, Email & Distraction Management. This is a CLE that you shouldn’t miss! The meeting will begin at noon on the 27th, at the CBA offices.

If you cannot attend in person, the livestream service will once again be provided by Anderson Reporting so that you may attend remotely from any location. In an effort to improve this service, Anderson Reporting is launching from a different platform in order to make the connection available and more reliable to those of you who have experienced difficulty participating previously. You will receive additional information after you have registered.

All should register, whether attending in person or remotely. Click here to register.

Lunch will be provided to the first fifteen members who arrive at the meeting.

Special Election

You should have received an electronic ballot on Monday of this week. Please take a few minutes and cast your vote to approve the candidates for the open PACO Board positions of President-Elect and Vice-President, with an option to nominate a candidate for Treasurer. Elections will be open until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 26, 2018.

The candidates whom you select will be announced at the General Membership Meeting on Tuesday the 27th, and the new officers will be installed during our General Membership Meeting on Tuesday, December 18, 2018. Please contact Brittany Hays or Taylor Stitt, PACO’s Elections Co-Chairs, via elections@pacoparalegals.org if you have any questions.

Thinking of Others

As we look ahead to the upcoming holidays, there are many in our communities who are not as fortunate as we are. Here’s an idea to help:

Donate gift cards to families in need
Imagine waking up this holiday season with no gifts for your children. Unfortunately, that’s the reality for many families in our community struggling to make ends meet. You have the power to help homeless moms and dads put smiles on their children’s faces this year. Make change this holiday season for families facing homelessness in central Ohio by donating $25 gift cards to the YWCA Family Center.

$25 gift cards
We accept gift cards from all major retailers such as Big Lots, Walmart, Target and Meijer.

Please send or drop off gift cards to the YWCA Family Center by December 18.
